Is your warehouse not as efficient as it could be? Could more work be getting done over the course of a single work day? Your employees aren’t to blame—your warehouse is lacking in proper organization.
Getting your warehouse in order can unlock a whole new level of efficiency, and organization starts with warehouse storage. Today we’d like to share with you several warehouse organization methods you can use to get more work done quickly.
If you are constantly getting lost in the maze of pallets and skids around your warehouse, you may not have the right approach. Instead of spreading your pallets far and wide, you should consider stacking them on top of each other.
With the right racks and shelving, you can efficiently store your products. Multiple rows of pallet racks or open industrial shelving make use of your warehouse’s high ceiling, leaving more room on the ground floor for other systems or just getting around.
There’s no need to waste time looking for just the right size screw or bit—not when you have cabinets. Bin cabinets provide plentiful storage for your smallest parts and pieces. You can store these parts by size, by tool—you can get very granular if you wish.
Cabinets provide storage for larger items as well. They’re the perfect place to store tools, cutting die, or other equipment. You won’t have to search for these items when they each have their proper place within the designated cabinet.
Maybe all your organizational woes have to do with money. Understandable, as there always seems to be one more thing your warehouse needs in order to function. However, affordable storage exists in the form of plastic storage bins.
Plastic storage bins, like bins, can be used to store very specific items for not much money at all. Rugged plastic materials are used to provide a great deal of storage for the price. Many styles of bins can stack on top of each other, helping you make the most of your space.
Many warehouses lack organization for even the simplest things like cleaning supplies or uniforms. This is inexcusable because lockers exist. Lockers are great for storing items that aren’t currently in use. The best part about them is that you can choose lockers in hundreds of different configurations—from tall, all-welded ventilated uniform lockers to six-tier box lockers.
Warehouse storage and organization is serious business. If you’re ready to make the most of your warehouse space, choose the right storage solution from the ones above and enhance your warehouse efficiency today!
